Hamfest Schedules

One of the most fun things you can do in the Ham Radio world is attending the gathering called a Hamfest.  As a child I had had a hard time understanding why Dad wanted to go to a Hamfest... go eat ham??  Not quite. 

A Hamfest is a gathering of amateur radio community, young and old.  There are classes, license tests, and the best of all... a huge yard sale of radio related goods.  You can buy and trade almost anything that has anything remotely to do with amateur radio.
